* The conclusion of [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/151/ Sun Bug]]. A firefly large enough for its luminous organs to be as bright as the Sun [[spoiler:turns out as large as our solar system, then collapsing under its own weight to become the biggest black hole in the universe.]]

* Discussing planets in a dual-sun system in [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/150/ Tatoonie Rainbow]]:
-->In the first kind of system, the two stars are close together and the planet goes around them far away. This kind of planet is called a circumbinary planet. In the second kind of system, the two stars are farther apart, and the planet orbits one of them[[labelnote:1]]Not necessarily the bigger one[[/labelnote]] while the other stays far away. This kind of planet is called [[BuffySpeak [the other kind of planet[=]=]]].[[labelnote:2]]I'm sorry, I've just never learned a good word for these.[[/labelnote]]

to:

* Discussing focusing the entire energy output of the sun into a 1-meter diameter beam in [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/141/ Sunbeam]]:
--> If you were standing in the path of the beam, you would obviously die pretty quickly. You wouldn't really die ''of'' anything, in the traditional sense. You would just stop being biology and start being physics.

* How Randall figured out the weight of a 20-inch pizza.
-->'''Footnote 1:''' Citation: I just ordered a pizza to check. I usually steer clear of experimental science in these articles, but am willing to make an exception when it involves eating a bunch of pizza.

* [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/42/ Longest Sunset]] kicks off the article by defining what qualifies as a sunset and what doesn't. Examples of the latter include the sun crossing the horizon partway and then reversing direction, the sun ''splitting in two'' and half of it setting, the sun ''landing on the horizon and hatching like an egg'' (AltText: "you bred sun-raptors?"), and a ''square sun'' that doesn't get a chance to do anything before the narration cuts it off (AltText: "aww, man, you didn't even let me try").

* This passage from [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/146/ Stop Jupiter]], while talking about the budget cuts necessary to build enough probes to perform enough gravitational slingshots to, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin stop Jupiter]].
-->At some point, in our desperate attempts to stop Jupiter's forward speed, we'd be reduced to stuffing handfuls of rocks and dirt into a burlap sack with a NASA logo on the side.
-->''(picture of Cueball and Ponytail doing exactly that)''[[note]][[MythologyGag Nixon famously had William Safire]] prepare [[http://xkcd.com/1484/ a speech]] to give in the event that the burlap sack got too full and split open[[/note]]
-->Then, believe it or not, we would ''[[SerialEscalation run out of rocks]]''.

** One What If: "What If ThePunisher Was the Stern But Fatherly Type?" This turns the normally trigger-happy crim-killer Frank Castle into a hilariously stereotypical strict teacher who forces DoctorDoom to sit in a corner and think about what he's done and makes ComicBook/{{Galactus}} write "I Will Not Eat Inhabited Planets" 500 times on a blackboard no bigger than Galactus' foot, forcing the world eater to get down on all fours to write on it!

to:

* [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/75/ "Phone Keypad"]] experiments with comprehensible phrases that can be produced with key restrictions. The resulting phrases and sentences are ridiculous, and become hysterical when illustrated. The AltText on each image is also very funny.

Added DiffLines:

* "[[https://cboproductions.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/whatifeveryonewhodeverbeenanavengerhadremainedanavenger.jpg What If Everyone Who Had Been An Avenger Remained An Avenger]]" shows a story where the Avengers are now a BadassArmy of various heroes. Sounds good, right? Well, Iron Man decides to assemble all of them to stop...a candy store robbery. Cue the Avengers forming a ThunderingHerd and all charging towards the candy store, while the original members decide that wasn't such a hot idea after all.
